How to remove front panel to repair the front usb ports on an Acer Aspire E380 -?


The front USB connectors are usually either molded into the front case or held in via a clip or screws. Unfortunately, when they go out due to the tab within the USB port breaking, they are not easily replaced as each manufacturer creates their own proprietary connector...not the USB part but the hardware to hold the USB in place. So you will find the hardest part of this project finding the right connector or "jerry-rigging" the new one to fit.

Another alternative is to remove everything from the old case...the mainboard, all the drives and whatever else can be moved, and put it into a new case. If your current power supply is good and of a standard size, etc...you can get a used case for around $10.00 and put all the other things from the old one in it. Fortunately, this series of Acer seems to be pretty much generic so everything should fit....just make sure the "new" case has good front USB ports.

Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.
